    Pretty funny but the cameos were pretty gratuitous. Tony Blair seemed to be a good sport. What's the song that was playing when Bart and Lisa went on that candy splurge? It was the one with the strong drum melody. Anyone know the title of that song?

    I think the song is Lust For Life by Iggy Pop. I thought it was a pretty funny episode. Looks like Homer has a sister now.

    Abby was the highlight of the show, I'd love for her to come back sometime.

    There were a few good laugh-out loud moments, but the celebrity cameos WERE gratuotious; only Tony Blair was funny. (Well, I got a chuckle out of Ian McKellan being crushed by the sign) I was on the floor over the Henry Higgins/Colonel Pickering being gay revelation, just because it came out of left field. Reading the last two sentences back to back, I come across as a bit homophobic, so just so the air's clear: I didn't find Ian McKellan being crushed by the sign funny 'cause he's gay; I foud it funny cause I find all people getting crushed by things funny.[​IMG]
    Abe jumping onto the plane suddenly after seeing the Homer Mrs. Doubtfire was great, as was the constant allusions to Bond at the weirdest moments. Other than that, just another sucky travel episode.

    It was a pretty good episode or what I saw of it was entertaining enough. I just love it when the Simpsons get to go to different places.

    I love that Dan C, just gave the regular pimply faced teen a British accent for the episode.

    Pimply-faced British teen was the highlight of the episode for me.

    Lisa: "Bart, your museum brought in over $3,000!"
    Bart: "Great, now I can buy what I always wanted, a used Toyota!"

    Very funny to me because a buddy is constantly bragging about his 1993 Toyota Camry for $2,700.

    I thought this episode was hilarious. SO good to see Mr Burns back again in the begining (more of him please!), and the stuff in the UK was great. I laughed out loud several times.

    Definately the strongest episode thus far this season.

    Marge: "You have to put up flyers to see if that $1000 belongs to someone. (paraphrasing)

    Homer and Bart with horrified looks on their faces

    Homer: This is why we don't tell you anything, Marge

    "Hockey Dad" was great "You're a big man now" Evidence that there is still genius in the writing.

    I can't believe that nobody pointed out the best line yet though

    Homer: We shared our prostitutes with Hugh Grant.

    Was this a real 15th season episode, or was it another holdover from last season?

    Oh yes, this episode was GOLD.

    MR. BURNS (unsteady at the ATM):"Guide me in Smithers."

    SMITHERS: "With pleasure sir!"
